116 rod gp crank

am building an engine that requires a gp crank with a 116 rod, i see plenty of cheap SIL cranks on ebay, my question is how feasable is building my own race crank? do the webs need machining for big end shims and any suggestions for con rods, ive got a tame engineer with a press btw

Re: Super reliable long distance euro tourer

did Davos on a standard TV175, apart from a cyclone box, which really opened the possibility of adding daily mileage without going down the horsepower route or significantly changing the characteristics of the scooter, mechanically, or visually.

Re: Kits for a frame breather

yup ,had an untuned SR175 barrel, ma19bs7 carb, was fine with standard pipe but when i put a casa s2 clubman it couldnt cope, suprisingly it was the float bowl that couldnt deliver enough fuel for the revs the clubman was working at, rather than the framebreather restricting airflow so i gave up, pu...
